urban_renewal [rejuvenation of memories].
I am not to be too fond of change.
Although I may alter my mind at some point, there are some things I remain faithful to, no matter what. They are simple everyday life things really, but sometimes I just insist on sticking to initial choices.
I look for familiarity I think; some safe zones and patches of stability are essential in a transient lifestyle.
When I first started urban_memories [the unfinished polaroids] and signed on blogger in 2006, I really took my time picking from the available templates, since I don’t know how to upload a page of my own. I could work out all the graphics of course, but I wouldn’t know what to do with it afterwards. So despite many imperfections, I thought that the template I am using now, resembles me the most, and I went with it ever since.
Even after blogger presented users with new and improved pre-designed templates which you could easily customize to your liking, I still found faults and things that I did not like, and opted to remain with my “classic” template. I didn’t think the updates were worth the change.
Almost Four years later, and as written memories are piling up on the archive list, I am still hesitating and wondering whether I should be going to need some redesigning.
Even if this change could be settled by just adhering to the new template system and changing the header photograph, I am still finding myself fighting the urge for change.
Blog design and legibility are very important to me and maybe as important as the content sometimes. If I don’t like the look of the blog, or if I think that I see “bad graphics”, I tend to read less or even not at all. I would go read elsewhere.
A small change on urban_memories may destroy this blog/blogger familiarity, and make me lose some settings that I had placed and would have liked to keep...
I don’t know... What do you think?
Please look to the right (in the margin below my profile) and tell me your thoughts by placing your vote.
If I can’t make up my mind, maybe I should ask you ladies and gents to help out.
